Paula Deen used to be okay. She was calm, quiet, down-to-earth & frequently very funny. When her sons first started showing up on the show, they were funny, too. Then something happened and she turned into a caricature of herself. This happens a lot on the Food Network. It happened to Rachael Ray,too. Sandra Lee's food is way worse than Paula's. I watch Sandra Lee for the express purpose of making fun of her on another message board. Yes, I am sometimes unfaithful to bigsoccer.com. Sue me.
